Spoke to management today, everything is the same as last time, shower & toilet , BBQ, kitchen, workshop & camping on site. Unfortunately, due to excessive speeding on the simulator, a speed limiter has been installed. Someone will be there at 8.30 Sat. morning to open the gate, See you then, Pete DLRA #6.

One thing we won't have is Smurf's super dooper heating device, so if someone has a heater for the workshop, please bring it along. Pete DLRA #6.
